Stoke winger Matthew Etherington remains a major doubt ahead of the game.

Etherington missed Wednesday's 1-0 defeat at Arsenal with a back-related injury that also forced him off after 38 minutes of last Saturday's FA Cup fifth-round win over Brighton.

Defender Abdoulaye Faye is unlikely to figure after missing the last four matches with a hamstring injury, whilst Mamady Sidibe is out long term with a ruptured Achilles.

West Brom manager Roy Hodgson should have a full squad available for the game.

Goalkeeper Scott Carson missed last weekend's 1-1 draw in the Black Country derby with Wolves due to illness but, like midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu (hamstring), will be available for the trip up the M6.

Graham Dorrans and Jonas Olsson should also be fit after a slight knock and a bout of illness respectively.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Huth, Wilson, Delap, Etherington, Whitehead, Jones, Collins, Fuller, Pugh, Whelan, Pennant, Wilkinson, Walters, Carew, Shawcross, Higginbotham, Diao, Sorensen.

West Brom (from): Carson, Myhill, Cech, Ibanez, Morrison, Barnes, Brunt, Reid, Fortune, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Shorey, Thomas, Zuiverloon, Meite, Odemwingie, Fortune, Tchoyi, Scharner, Thomas, Cox, Vela, Tamas, Olsson, Jara.
